    The muscles you need to strengthen...

    Bow side, triceps, deltoid and lats
    Drawing side, Trapezius minor and rhomboids. Excercising your biceps for toning won't hurt, as long as you don't build it up too big. Biceps help in the first phase of drawing before you anchor.

    Also work out your drawing forearm. What I usually do here is to carry heavy objects, such as my bowcase, on your finger tips. Make a hook with your fingers just as if you're holding the string and carry the case with that hook. Focus on relaxing the forearm as much as possible without dropping the case.

    Specific excercises, pushups to strengthen the triceps and shoulders.
    Lateral pulldowns to work out your lats
    Lateral arm raises
    Bent over arm raises
    military press
    reverse butterfly
    rowing
